caught from the kitchen chimney and
some of the shingles had tob8 torn
off of the roof before the fire could be

great excitement and in a very short
time a large crowd had gathered
around the house ready to fgive assistance
should the fire make great
headway. The fcitchen adjoins the

It is rumored that the Ridge way
people who presented so successfully
the play, "Finnigan's Fortune," in
Ridgeway a short time ago, are coming
to Winn8boro to play before our
people. The play is certainly worth
seeing, and we hope that should our
neighbors decide tc play in Winnshoro
that a large andiense will greet them,
[t ha3 been a long time since we have
had any theatricals in Winnsboro, and
this play ought to be well attended.
Fire at the Depot
A cotton fire occurred at the freight
depot Saturday morning, but as there
happened to be very little cotton on
the platform at the time and a number
of hands near it was soon extinguished
and very little damage was done. A
snark from a Dassinsr enartne started
the fire and in a few minutes about a
dozsn bales were blazing. The fire
alarm was uot rung as it was seen at
once that the fire could easily be cantrolled.
The otton that caught fire
belonged to Mr. U. G. DesPortes.

CAPX. BASOX'S RETIREMENTTbe
following notice of the retirement
of Capt. Bason from the railroad
service, which we clip from the
State, will be of interest to many of
onr readers a? Capt. Bason has many
friends amoDg the people of Fairfield:
Capt. H. A. Bason, who has for
nearly a quarter of a century been
conductor on the Charlotte, Colombia
and Augusta road, has signinea nis
intention to leave the service. His
resignation will go into effect on May
1st, and another will take thi ticket
punch.
Capt. Bason is known in every little
town and in every city along the line
over which he has traveled dailv for
22 years. Such conductors as CapL
Bason make traveling on the cars
more endurable. Always with a
pleasant word, always with a smile,
always with some little courtesy to
the ladies under his charge, he has
made himself indispensable to the
road.
Tbe Charlotte News, in speaking of
his retirement, says:
"Capt. Ba^on be?:au railroading in
tbe olden days when improved machinery
and the palace cars of to-day
wert not even thought of. He contin
oei in the service because he was
attached to it, and, even n#fv, reluctantly
gives np the position which he
has held with honor to himself and
credit t? the road.
When he first went with the Charlotte,
Columbia and Augusta road
Col. Palmer of Colombia was president
and Mr. CliBft was superintendent.
He has worked under nine different
superintendents, and has never lost
one day except on accoun^^^^^e^

Cap^in H. A. Gaillard, President ^
Mt. Zif>i> Society: a
My Dear Captain?In a conversa- 8
tion with my father several months ^
prior to his death, he expressed the 11
wish that one of his sets of the war I

Mt. Zion College, where the record of *
the gallant men, his comrades in arms, *

of'hp generations which would
follow. I a?ii anxious to carry out his
wish, which is also that of my sister
aud myself I regret to say that in
the confusion of moviDg and transition,
knvwo to many of your society,
these pa^t few years, some of the
volumes uave been lost. This may be
remedied by a purchase, at actual J
cost, from the war record's office? ?
and to this I will be most glad to contribute,
wheo ij condition to do so.
I wrote to {he war department some c
time ago, telling the chief of the
record's office the disposition which
wa? proposed to be made of this set, ^
now lornriiiy tendered to the society
through von. and in replv recaived his y
cordial approval, and also a grant to
the fclt. Zion Society of the remainder t
of the ser, which he directs shall be .
sent to the society a3 the volumes are
issued. This letter from the war
Seoord't office is now in Mr. Jas. Q. i

ciety write the war record's office im- (
mediately aad designate a custodian
ot the books. c
I will be glad to deliver those in my i
keeping, now at onr Canaan planta- t

s due yon friends that I shoold explain
why I, and likely others, have
lot contributed any money to assist
Charleston. It was generally thought
wa3 it not so published?) that Charleson
intended to entertain all U. C. Y.'s
ree of cost. Thinking this, every one
. approached readily agreed to contribute
at least what he thought his
individual expenses would otherwise
ie in Charleston, sav from $1.50 to
IS. 00. .
Not long after this it seemed to
bangs from a Charleston to a State
nvitation. Then we were all a3ked to
lelp. Every one that I talked with
eemed ready to do so at the proper

committee pnblished a card ad'ising
all who wished to attend to

ame a long card giving prices for

lave been made in regard to those

There is no one who feels the shock
ore keenly than I. Now in tha first
(lace, I did not receive but the one
etter, about the 6th day of April, and
he contents of that letter were just as
rile to Janie Lemmon as myself. We
vere made to share equally all the
ueau Jhing8 contained therein, aud
or tb&t reassn I took that letter to her
irst one, in order that she might see
vhat was said about her. I told her j
hen and there that I was going to
ake the envelop to Mr. Rionandlet
lim see if he could find out who wrote
hat letter eo that we might give them
i piece of our mind, not having the
ilightest idea n<- tu who was the author
>f that
I admit that I had very little hope of
iver finding cut the one re?p msible
or that letter, and tlierc was not a
vord in said letter concerning Flor;uce
Jones, as reported in the issue of
he 25th nit, a3 the original letter will
ihow.
The point I wish to draw oat clearly
s to s>how to the public that there was
lot the slightest cause for the shadow
)f suspicion upon Janie Lemmon, one
>f my best and dearest friends, and
ve have been so at all times; even to
he last sad moment of her existence.
[ knew nothing of the finding of the
>fficer until after he had fastened the
:ase upon her. He then asked me to
el) all I knew about the case, and I
.old him that I did not know anything
;o tell, ouly on one occasion s!ie said
John Sampson snouiu not go who
Florence. That was all she said, a''d
:he word revenue was uot used io
my knowledge at ali, neither rii>l I
inow that the inspector intended
place a^y one under arrest if found
ou?. "We told him in the beginning
that we did not wish anything done ?o
any one, for I bad no desire to have
my one puuisbed, more than an exposure
and lectare from this officer.
I am heartily sorry for all that has
happened, atd hope that I may never
again be made to suffer as I have since
the occurrence of this unfortunate
calamity, which has brought to all
hearts of our community everlasting
sorrow. Lei ns from this a new les
son learn, (hat education in its full
ucss, or in a. limited way, will not ir
all cases prjvi a blessing unless prop
erly applied. Very respectfully,
May 1, 1S99. Alice U>sve.
